I've been there
I've been where you are
the slaps and punches
could be hear from afar.
The black and blues would
eventually heal
but the emotional turmoil
I will forever feel.
This is something a small
child should not see
he is already different
and takes after me.
I thank god for
showing me the way
without him I wouldn't
have had the strength
and stayed.
I was at the mercy
of his battering hands
and evil ways
but had the will to live
and knew
I couldn't stay.

Tragic theme put to poetry
Reviewed by Regis Auffray
A most touching and meaningful sharing, Faye. Again you express a theme that is sadly too common in this life/world/dimension. Thank you. Love, peace, strength, and best wishes to you,

Haunting and painful.
There are 2 things we nice guys can never understand.
The first, is how any man can treat his lady wrong.
The second, is why we get passed up for those guys.
But we're here- your second of third choice.
What a moment it was when I lifted my hand to carress my sweetie's face and she realized that she didn't duck expecting the blow.
She was finally used to me.
Be loved,

John

That takes so much courage. Well done.

You paint this piece with small, straightforward lines that each leave an impact. The hard, tight rhymes stop us at the end of each couplet reinforcing the feelings of the slaps. I don't know if that was intentional or not, but it works. --Charlie
